OSCE mission in Montenegro has donated forensic €33.700 worth equipment to the Forensic Center in Danilovgrad.
Equipment includes station for forensic analyses, licensed software for monitoring Internet evidence and access to digital devices, mobile forensic equipment for collecting evidence at the crime scene and 10 vehicle identification number devices.
After the donation contract was signed with Director of Police Department, Mr Veselin Veljović, chief of OSCE mission in Montenegro, Ms Maris Davie, said that this equipment would be helpful for criminal investigations.
“The equipment will enable Forensic Center to examine digital evidence and carry out data analyses at crime scene in order to save evidence”, said Ms Davie.
She reminded that OSCE supported Forensic center since its formation in 2008.
“The Center has been accredited at international level. It’s a giant step forward in fight against regional and international crime. Evidence collected in the Center will be accepted by any court”, said Ms Davie.
Mr Veljović said that this donation was very important, not only because of its value but also because it would contribute to fight against all types of crime and assist criminal police in their activities.
“Forensic Center is a very serious institution now. It meets standards of renowned forensic centers”, said Mr Veljović.
“OSCE is our strategic partner”, added Mr Veljović.
